It is believed that St. George was a Christian who lived in the Near East during the Roman Empire. Bronze St George sculpture is loved for successfully killing a poisonous dragon in Libya. Now, in many places in Britain, you can see the pattern of a horse-riding warrior in armor slaying a dragon. This is Saint George.
The poisonous dragon built a nest by the water source. Every day, they have to sacrifice two sheep to the dragon, and when the sacrifice of the sheep is finished, they must be replaced by a young girl. The people choose the victims by drawing lots. One day, the princess was elected. The king begged the citizens, hoping to choose someone else to replace the princess, but it was useless. When the princess was sent to the dragon’s nest, a bronze St George sculpture traveled to this place. He relied on the power of faith to kill the dragon to save the princess.
Even though St. George never existed, the story of the bronze St George sculpture conveys the spirit of protecting the weak, facing the invaders, and sacrificing holiness.
